I also offer prints and products such as birth announcements, gorgeous custom albums, and heirloom boxes with prints to preserve your memories and will be more then happy to help you order if you choose to do so.

Welcome from your San Diego Maternity/Newborn Photographer and Baby Whisperer


Hi there and congratulations on your decision to hire a photographer! My name is Kristen from Kristen Marie Imagery. I am a San Diego photographer based in North County. I specialize in newborn photography, maternity photography and baby photography -including Milestone and Cake Smash sessions.

I am experienced, full time photographer who has worked with over 300 newborns and countless babies and families. I have invested an incredible amount in education in posing and lighting, equipment and beautiful handmade props/textures/bonnets to craft beautiful portraits of your newborn. It is my promise to you that I will safely and expertly handle your baby. As an early childhood educational specialist, my early passion has been working with babies, small children and families. Therefore, choosing newborn photography to specialize in was an easy choice for me. Investing in a photography session with me ensures that you will have beautiful portraits of your baby taken in a safe and nurturing environment. I am a firm believer in respecting each child (no matter how small) as a unique individual with needs that are meant to be honored. I love getting to know each infant and I listen to them in each session to make sure they are comfortable and secure.

What I love about being a maternity and a newborn baby photographer is it allows me to develop lasting relationships throughout the years. This makes each session more then just a job- it is a chance to share in the lives of my families and watch their babies grow!  My clients often return to me to for milestone and cake smash sessions, as well as family portraits and even subsequent pregnancy announcements and maternity sessions. I know you have your choice of San Diego family photographers, so I feel honored each time parents choose me to share in these special moments.

Kind Words

“Kristen is probably the sweetest and the best photographer you can ever imagine! We had a wonderful time at her studio last weekend. She is very flexible, understanding and tries to work with mom and baby’s unpredictable schedules. My baby wasn’t very cooperative but Kristen made it work! At the end of the session, my baby felt so comfortable and loved Kristen so much she didnt even wanna leave. If you want beautiful, quality pictures and pleasant, stress-free experience, as well as reasonable pricing, then look no further. I’m so glad I found Kristen! Don’t let those precious moments go away. Book your session early and talk with her to discuss colors/ styles. She can make it happen!”- Mi R.
